Dwell & Playground - Simply Retro

If you've been following along with Jana's quilt along, you'll know that I missed last weeks post for the quilt along. I actually had a few blocks finished and ready to post but was just a minute or two too late to add them to Jana's link party and since the rest of the week was so crazy I never got around to posting them at all. I'm sure you can guess what was so busy around here, probably the same thing that's going on in your neck of the woods too. 
 I now have all three of my boys in school all day so it's just me and my little girl left at home. We are going a little crazy but I'm sure we'll figure out our days soon enough. 
Today during her nap time, I was able to sneak downstairs and finish this little house up. The quilt is called Dwell and has a total of 16 houses. I actually decided to just do one block but make it half size so I could frame it and use it for some decor on my mantle. I think it turned out pretty cute! This was such an easy block, I am tempted to go make more, only regular size, for a wall hanging. Plus it uses up scraps, can't beat that. The hardest part was figuring out the math to make it smaller. 
 Here are a few pictures of the blocks I did for last weeks quilt, playground. The fabric is called Simply Style by V and Co. I took the pictures in the evening so the coloring isn't the greatest. But at least you can see how cute of a quilt this is going to turn out to be. 
 The next quilt in Camille Roskelley's book Simply Retro is called Adorn and is a darling wall hanging. I'm headed downstairs to work on it now!
